What is it like to live in Prague? Would you recommend it? What is the city like?

Prague is a beautiful city with an amazing old town, but the negative side of this are the tourists. Especially in summer and autumn you can barly walk in the old town.


Outside the city it gets better and there is still amazing architecture.

What is the student lifestyle like in Prague?

Let's say it in one word: party. Every night there are organized parties for erasmus students with reduced or no entree fee, free drinks and specials. Every type of music is played in different clubs. Beer and long drinks are cheap in clubs and bars, so you can defenetly enjoy your erasmus live.

University was more the side effect and not that often visited in my case.

How much does it cost to live in Prague?

Living in Prague depends on your housing. If you decide to go into an accomodation of the university its around 120 euro per month, but you have to share a room with another person and sometimes there exists only a shared kitchen with 30 other ppl.

Food is cheap, especailly meat, but if you want to have fancy food like avocados, mangos..., you have to pay more than in other EU countries.

Beer and alcohol is normal in supermarkets, but very cheap in clubs and bars compared to germany.

Going out for dinner ist most of the time way cheaper.
